2017 American Silver Eagles – 100 oz – West Point Mint.
Shipped in five (5) fresh US Mint tubes
Simply put, the American Silver Eagle is the world’s most stunning one oz silver bullion coin.
The Silver Eagle’s obverse was taken from the “Walking Liberty” design by Adolph A. Weinman, originally used on the U.S Walking Liberty Half Dollar (1916 to 1947). As this design was one of the most beloved United States coins of modern times, it was revived for the Silver Eagle. The obverse is inscribed with the year of issue, the word LIBERTY, and the phrase IN GOD WE TRUST.
The reverse was designed by legendary engraver John Mercanti, the twelfth Chief Engraver of the US Mint and the designer of over 100 US coin and medal designs. The Eagles features Mercanti’s portrayal of a heraldic eagle behind a shield; an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon, echoing the Great Seal of the United States. Above the eagle are thirteen five-pointed stars representing the original Thirteen Colonies. The reverse is inscribed with the phrases UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1 OZ. FINE SILVER, ONE DOLLAR, and E PLURIBUS UNUN.
